Washing Machine Hose Connection

Hi All,

I'm trying to connect a flexible washing machine waste hose to a spigot on a P Trap.

Unfortunately the hose had already been cut, so we've lost the smooth end (onto which the jubilee clip usually bites down on). I'm just left with the ribbed hose, and despite having a jubilee clip on nice and tight it's still got a small weep.

Apart from opening up the back of the washing machine to try and replace the entire hose, anyone got any top tips for getting a decent connection?

A good smear of silicone is your friend here, Mr. A......just fill the corrugations with it, then pipe on and tighten.
